[ # ] Did Anthony Anderson’s mom force ABC to move black-ish back to fall?
June 18th, 2020 under ABC, Anthony Anderson


Yesterday, ABC announced their fall lineup and black-ish was missing from their schedule. Today, they sent out a press release to announce that the sitcom is back on it.

“’black-ish’ has a long-standing history of shining a light on current events and honoring Black voices through the lens of the Johnson family,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. “After speaking with Kenya and our creative partners, we decided it was important to tell these meaningful stories during this moment in time, so we are adjusting our premiere schedule and are committed to doing whatever it takes to bring this series back as soon as we possibly can. Following recent monumental events, it’s imperative that the dialogue continues and empowers viewers to raise their voices, and there is no other show that does that like ‘black-ish.’”

I could not understand how ABC could leave their premiere show about African-Americans off of the fall schedule during this time when Black voices are being heard and need to continue to be heard.

ABC did the right thing. I just wish they would stop messing with American Housewife. In order to fit black-ish back on Wednesday nights, they gave it the slot that was supposed to belong to AH. So now black-ish airs at 8:30p, AH at 9:30p, and Call Your Mother goes to midseason.

With all of this being said, Anthony Anderson’s mom Doris can release whoever she was holding hostage until they brought back her son’s show. And if his TV mom Jenifer Lewis was helping out, then ABC never had a chance.
